SALT LAKE CITY — Attorneys for the Utah House committee investigating Attorney General John Swallow want a judge to compel him to comply with a subpoena demanding electronic records, including a large amount that might have been lost or deleted.
Investigators for the committee have learned that a massive volume of data — much more than initially reported last week — is missing, according to a motion filed late Friday in 3rd District Court. The subpoena seeks records from Swallow and his office dating back to Dec. 1, 2009, when he became chief deputy.
According to the court filing, missing is:
- A potentially large number of emails Swallow received on the office email system.
- A significant number of Swallow's electronic calendar entries for 2009, 2010 and 2011.
- All of the information from Swallow's state-issued data devices, including desktop and laptop computers and personal data assistant, from before 2013.
- Information on the hard drive of Swallow's home computer, which has stopped working.
